Dawn to Dusk 2013

Ever ridden all day – literally?!

To mark the shortest day of the year, MB Swindon is holding a day long ‘Dawn to Dusk’ ride along some of its favourite local routes.

Both rides are novice friendly, and you can decide whether to do a morning, an afternoon or a whole day ride. If you are considering doing both rides, please ensure that you are fit enough and have plenty of supplies of food, drink and spares.

Lights would be useful if you intend to ride part 2 as we may be delayed on the way back, and will be essential if you are riding home afterwards.

 

Part One: From Dawn…

A Ridgeway ride from Foxhill taking in Barbury Castle. There will be a couple of climbs, but nothing too technical. There will be a café stop at Chiseldon on the way back for morning coffee (and cake)!
